S-5-PV Kit

S-5-PV Kit

The concept of combining

photovoltaic arrays with

standing seam metal roofing is

growing—and for good reasons. A

standing seam metal roof has a life

expectancy consistent with that of

framed PV modules. A 30-year power

source, on a 30-year roof, along with

zero-penetration technology creates

the most sustainable roof system

available coupled with alternative

power generation!

The challenge has

been in how to attach

the PV modules to

the standing seam

roof systems without

jeopardizing roof

material and


warranties. The

answer is the S-5-PV

Kit and the S-5! Mini.


ith a service life compatible

with the expectancy of metal

roofs and attached accessories,

the S-5-PV Kit offers unmatched

sustainability. Penetration-free

attachment, lower installation costs,

and cooler roofs, combined with

rising energy costs and increased

environmental concerns all spell

a bright, sunny future for PV and

standing seam metal roofs. S-5!

makes it easy.






Attach almost anything to standing seam metal roofs

without piercing the panel!

The embossed mounting disk makes the module

placement guide easier to use. Four strategically

placed under-disk hooks assist in wire management.

The PV grab ears that hold the solar panel in place are

broader to allow for ease of installation and precise

module engagement. The mounting disk is universally

directional and absolutely no rails are required.

A stud is available for our VersaBracket PV Kit. S-5! also

offers a flat stainless steel mounting disk for our stainless

steel PV Kit for use on brass clamps and copper roofs.

Wind dynamics are complex, thus, each system should be

reviewed by a qualified licensed professional who understands

wind effects on metal roof design and construction prior

to purchase and installation. For more detailed information

holding strength, setscrews should be tensioned and re-tensioned as the seam

material compresses. Clamp setscrew tension should be verified using a calibrated

torque wrench between 160 and 180 inch pounds when used on 22ga steel and

between 130 and 150 inch pounds for all other metals and thinner gauges of steel. Consult

the S-5! website at www.S-5.com for published data regarding holding strength.
